robotpy-build is a build dependency, not a runtime dependency –
in otherwords, you only need it to build binary wheels. Once you have
a wheel, the wheel is usable without
robotpy-build requires Python 3.6 to be installed. Our integration tests
are ran on Ubuntu 18.04, OSX, and Windows.
Linux and Windows are expected to work in almost any case
OSX should work, but when depending on shared libraries there are some cases where relinking doesn’t work
To compile the generated code created by
robotpy-build, you must have a
modern C++ compiler that is supported by pybind11.
robotpy-build is distributed on pypi and is installable via pip.
On Linux/OSX, you can install with the following command:
$ pip3 install robotpy-build
On Windows, you can install via:
py -3 -m pip install robotpy-build
pybind11 is a header-only C++ library that robotpy-build leverages to easily bind together Python and C++ code. All robotpy-build projects are built using a bundled version of pybind11, which is typically a bleeding edge version of pybind11 with custom patches that have not been accepted upstream yet.
robotpy-build does not use the pybind11 package distributed on pypi.
